In this extended transcript of an interview with "Sunday Morning" correspondent Serena Altschul, the playwright and Oscar-winning screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan talks about the origin of his 2000 play "The Waverly Gallery," currently presented on Broadway in a critically-acclaimed revival starring Elaine May, as well as his experiences, positive and negative, in the world of film.

IN your area, there may be a number of schools available for your child, and you can decide whether to choose the catchment comprehensive, or whether you want to explore other options. This is a difference between state, grammar and private schools - and which is the right choice for YOUR kids. What's the difference between state, grammar and private schools? State schools State schools can be divided into two categories: academies and maintained schools. Academies are publicly funded, but independent - meaning they have more control over the curriculum and other aspects of the school. They're held accountable for their performance through a funding agreement.
