The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( ) city officials met Wednesday with Utah Repertory Theater representatives and agreed the company could present two plays next year that were initially denied because of their mature content.

They will also work to include a forum to add an educational component to Utah Repertory’s plays at the Sorenson Unity Center.
