Sally Nemeth got a taste of the commuting life in Southern California last week, on the evening her play "Holy Days" had its U.S. premiere here on South Coast Repertory's Second Stage. "Friday on the 405," she said. "Nobody told me. I just didn't have a clue. It was a 45-mile-long parking lot all the way down. No lie. I come out to Los Angeles. I get a rent-a-car. Wow. They gave me a Mustang. They were out of Econoboxes. This Mustang has power everything. Then I pull onto the freeway.

I wanted to express my appreciation for Martin Booe's article ("New Year's Plot Resolutions," Metropolis, Nov. 11). As a book lover and non-sports fan, I was delighted to read how Sally Nemeth rings in the New Year. Sharing books and expanding one's literary world is an exciting way to kick off the New Year. Thanks to Nemeth, I now have a new agenda for my New Year's Day event. Dottie Brewer Woodland Hills

"I'm not your classically beautiful person," Jeanne Paulsen says, matter-of-factly and without regret. Possibly her deep Iowa roots have pointed her to the realization that while beauty is perishable, character is not. A former schoolteacher, Paulsen is a classically trained actress who's been working on the West Coast for the past few years and is now based in Seattle's A Contemporary Theater. Southern California audiences first saw her tall, raw-boned, Appalachian frame move through a ghostly, terrible grief in Sally Nemeth's "Holy Days" at the South Coast Repertory last season.

In a newsletter mailed this week to about 23,000 subscribers, South Coast Repertory has announced several plays being considered by artistic directors David Emmes and Martin Benson for the Costa Mesa theater's 11-play, 1989-90 season. Among the contemporary plays they are mulling for the six Mainstage productions are Alan Ayckbourn's "Woman in Mind," Hugh Whitemore's "Breaking the Code," Richard Hellesen's "Once in Arden" and Howard Korder's "Search and Destroy." Korder's and Hellesen's plays, if chosen, would be world premieres.

High above the city of Birmingham, Ala., rises the statue of Vulcan, god of the forge. The statue is now a sadly ironic metaphor for this Southern manufacturing center, whose forges quickly cooled in the steel bust of the late 1970s.

The biggest sack of defensive lineman Dennis Byrd's life--knocking into a hat the medical predictions that he would never walk again--is the stuff of the legendary "Brian's Song" (1972), although Byrd's movie has a sunny ending.

The American premiere of Sally Nemeth's "Holy Days," a play set in Kansas during the dust bowl years of the Great Depression, will replace Steve Tesich's "The Speed of Darkness" as the third production in South Coast Repertory's Second Stage season. The Tesich play, which had been announced in October, was dropped because of "difficulties in finalizing the acquisition of production rights," according to an SCR press release.

What parents in their right mind would dress their kids in these ridiculously impractical and overpriced clothes ("Wild Kingdom," Aug. 19)? I don't know any kids who would want to dress this way either. Any parent knows that in the real world it wouldn't take long for Evan to lose that $265 blazer, for Cinque to soil that $80 T-shirt or for Iliana to tear those $48 tights. And let's not forget that kids can only wear clothes for a season before growing out of them.

Slices of life don't come any leaner or hardier than "Holy Days," Sally Nemeth's affecting account of a 1936 Kansas farm family whose inheritance has turned, quite literally, to dust. Indeed, the first striking thing about director Ann Hearn's graceful, near-perfect new production at Theatre 40 is the evocative yellow-brown patina of Ellen Monocroussos' lights across Jeff G. Rack's spare yet detailed set.

Martin Benson, artistic director of South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, has won so many awards for his stage productions we've stopped counting. Given the critical raves for his direction of "Heartbreak House" earlier this season, he could be up for more. He recently branched out into film, directing a screen version of Sally Nemeth's "Holy Days," which he staged at SCR a couple of seasons back. "It's really on-the-job training," says Benson of the film, which is now in post-production.
