Donald Kvares

Donald Kvares, a playwright, died May 4 of complications from diabetes.

He was 57.

Kvares, who began his career in New York during the early days of the off-off-Broadway movement, had many of his works produced at the Cafe Cino and La Mama Experimental Theater in New York City.

In 1985, when two of his one-act plays bowed at the Sargent Theater on West 54th Street, Kvares declared that it was his 100th production in New York. Kvares’s play “Smoking Pistols” won the Samuel French/Double Image award, and his “Doctor’s Office Disco” garnered a New York Drama League award.

Survived by a sister.
