He was a writer of domestic farces which were extremely popular in his day and even yet are a favourite with amateur drama groups. His work includes Cupid Wore Skirts, Married Bliss, Widow’s Paradise, Don’t Tell The Wife, Second Honeymoon, Family Fever, Wedding Fever and The Love Nest. The well-known English comedian, Sid James, died on stage while acting in one of Cree’s plays, The Mating Season. Sam Cree is buried in Lisburn, County Antrim.
