I think I'd put a "SPOILERS" tag here, but if you're looking for a solution to this, you'd probably be already playing up to this part of the game... anyway, here goes!

One of your main quests is to gain the support of the dwellers. During this quest, the dwellers would request three conditions before they follow you. You'll get the chance to get this achievement during the third condition.

The third condition requires you to bring food to the dwellers. Upon completing the first two conditions, you'd meet this man called Samuel, who's the librarian at the town of Brightwall. To convince him to donate food to the dwellers, you must prove your worth to him by amassing an additional 30 Guild Seals, on top of what you already have.

New quests should now appear, each offering various numbers of Guild Seals. You'd need to look for this quest called "Lost Play", which should be found at the north of the Brightwall map. Go to the spot to find Lambert and Pinch, talk to them, and accept their quest to find a lost play that blends "tragedy and comedy".

Go into the library nearby, and follow the golden trail to a book. Examine it, and you'll be drawn into an alternate world inside the book. You'd now need to convince the playwright's (Phillip Morley?) ghost who drawn you into the book by acting out three scenes in his works.

Before doing all these scenes, you'd need to wear the appropriate costumes, which are conveniently found near you.

(Sidenote: These costumes will add to your progress for the "Fashion Victim" achievement, which requires you to collect every clothing item.)

For the first scene, press "A" to declare your love to pass.

For the second scene, press "A" to tickle the king to pass.

For the third scene, it's a bit tricky. You'd need to fight some mercenaries. According to the ghost, you'd need to either die or defeat all the foes. Since there's an achievement for not being knocked out at all en route to completing this game, I'd suggest you kill all the enemies. Upon passing this third scene, the playwright would then offer the lost play.

Back to Lambert and Pinch, give them the play, and they would act it out. Upon completing the show, the achievement would unlock. You'd also get 20 Guild Seals for your effort.
