In 1926-1928, Artaud ran the Théâtre Alfred Jarry, along with Roger Vitrac. He produced and directed original works by Vitrac, as well as pieces by Paul Claudel and August Strindberg. The Theater was extremely short-lived, but was attended by an enormous range of European artists, including André Gide, Arthur Adamov, and Paul Valéry.

Also performed were Les Mystères de l'amour (1927) and Victor ou les enfants au pouvoir (1928).

The theatre set the tone for the Theatre of the Absurd, twenty year before Ionesco.
