Cate Blanchett has suffered a head wound after being hit by a prop on stage during a performance in Sydney.
A Sydney Theatre Company spokesman said the performance of 'A Streetcar Named Desire', in which Cate plays Blanche DuBois, was cancelled yesterday but Cate will return to the stage for tomorrow's performance.
He says the injury was caused by a prop transistor radio lifted by an actor.
"Another actor lifted the prop above his head and she somehow sustained a minor blow to the head," he said.
An audience member told Sydney's Macquarie Radio it soon became clear the accident was not part of the play.
"She had blood streaming down the back of her head and blood on the back of her neck," the theatre-goer said.
Sydney Theater Company is run by Oscar-winner Cate and her playwright husband, Andrew Upton.
