Toby Jones, David Morrissey, Russell Tovey and Ruth Wilson are set to appear on BBC Radio 3 as part of the broadcaster’s autumn drama season, which includes productions of Marlowe’s Edward II and Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera.

Jones will star as Edward in Marlowe’s play, alongside Patrick Kennedy, while Morrissey will appear with Toby Stephens in Jean Anouilh’s Becket, which will be broadcast in October.

Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera will be conducted by HK Gruber, who is to succeed James MacMillan as the BBC Philharmonic’s composer and conductor, starting in September 2009.

The cast includes Joseph Millsom, Zubin Varla, Conrad Nelson and Austrian singer Ute Gfrerer.

Elsewhere Tovey and Wilson will star in The Promise by Alexei Arbuzov.
