About This Print

Depicting the actor Nakamura Tokizō III as Danshichi Shima no Okaji in the play Shinzō Tsurifune Kidan, this print is also in the collection of The Tsubouchi Memorial Theatre Museum of Waseda University as shown below.  It is undated and other than the inscription 「中村時蔵の団七縞お梶」the Waseda database provides no additional information.  I also have not been able to determine which performance of the play Shinzō Tsurifune Kidan 新造艣奇談  しんぞう つりぶねきだん this print may have been created for nor have I been able to find a summary of the plot of the play, which may have been written by Sakurada Jisuke III (1802-1877).
