Byland's ability to connect with others and build strong relationships has impacted team members. "EB has been my mentor with my acting career for two years," says Fairclough, 27, a sales agent at Red Ventures in Fort Mill. "She's taught me and guided me to learn everything I know about acting. She has helped a lot with balancing life and acting." Byland's pride for her small troupe is palpable, and although they were under the radar for the past three years, she's ready for people to know about Mom's Adhesive. "I like to think of them as my little quiet storm," she says. Long-Form Improv Mom's Adhesive uses long-form improv. Unlike the short form, which relies on suggestions from the audience to play quick games, long form consists of an approximately 30-minute scene based on one suggestion from the audience. In long form, improvisers play one or more characters to tell a story. "It's like the purest form of storytelling," Byland says. "In long form, you are telling a story from beginning (to) middle and end. You get to experience this really fun journey on stage, totally unscripted, in front of an audience." Byland says audience members have messaged her days after a show to comment on moments in the performance and note connections they may not have first noticed. "It has an effect that will stay with you," she says. Mom's Adhesive performs around Charlotte and in AOS's black-box style theater called the Basement Theatre. Shows are usually on the last Saturday of every month at 8 p.m. Performances are PG-13 recommended, and tickets are $10 each.
