Cate Blanchett gets a head wound on stage

SYDNEY (AP) - September 2, 2009 The performance of Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire" was canceled, but the 40-year-old Australian actress will return to the stage for Thursday's show, Sydney Theater Company spokesman Tim McKeough said.

"Another actor lifted the prop above his head, and she somehow sustained a minor blow to the head," McKeough said.

Sydney Theater Company is run by Blanchett and her playwright husband, Andrew Upton.

Blanchett, who won a supporting actress Oscar in 2005 for "The Aviator," is playing the lead role of Blanche DuBois.
