Albert-Birot directed the first performance of Les mamelles de Tirésias (Tiresias's Breasts, 1917) by Guillaume Apollinaire, a friend who had also been a contributor to SIC. He went on to compose numerous plays of his own, including Barbe-Bleue (Bluebeard); Les Femmes pliantes (The Flexible Woman); and L'homme coupé en morceaux (The Dismembered Man).

In 1929 he founded his own theater, Le Plateau, in which he produced his own series of short performance pieces entitled Pièces-Études.
