In his highly anticipated seventh autobiographical collection of domestic/fantastic theatre-verse, Gerry navigates an ocean of poems and little splashes. From Scottie Road to saunas, Hammer films to heartfelt and articulate politics, and the lost and found of loves and lives, this is where mythos becomes proven fact.
Accidental Splendour of the Splash also includes the script of his hit play 'Miracle' and a Foreword by Roger Hill.
Gerry Potter is a poet, playwright, director, actor, and both creator and destroyer of the infamous gingham diva, Chloe Poems. A favourite son of Manchester and his home town Liverpool, he is an Everyman Youth Theatre alumnus and National Museums Liverpool lists him amongst the city's leading LGBT+ icons. His published works are included in both the poetry and philosophy collections at Harvard University, and the documentary My Name is Gerry Potter [Dir. Alejandro Negueruela] premiered at Homotopia in 2015. Gerry has a reputation for putting his Scouse voice on the line, and is strong on poetry and strong on the causes of poetryism.
