Here's an impression of the design, though apparently made from a different block than the poster has:

http://pc6.pc3-unet.ocn.ne.jp:7000/uploads?upload=58

According to that site the depicted actors are:

Onoe Matsusuke I 尾上松介 as 花もとの蛇形 (perhaps "Hanamoto no Jagata"?) and
Ōtani Hiroji III 三代目 大谷広次 as Okabe no Rokuyata のおかべの六弥太

I see a couple of different designs at MFA Boston showing Ōtani Hiroji III as Okabe no Rokuyata, both dated to 1764 but identified under different performance names; I think the main play title is "Wakagi no Hana Suma no Hatsuyuki" 若木花須磨初雪.
