Actress Cate Blanchett has suffered a head wound after being hit by a prop on stage during a Sydney performance.

Sydney Theatre Company spokesman Tim McKeough said the performance of A Streetcar Named Desire was cancelled today but Blanchett will return to the stage for tomorrow's performance.

He says the injury was caused by a prop transistor radio lifted by an actor.

Cate has won many awards, including an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator.
