6631385CATE Blanchett has been hit on the head by a prop as she performs in A Streetcar Named Desire, in Sydney. It’s the Summer of Death, the big celebrity cull as celebs keeps step with the recession and reduce in numbers in accordance with the EU directive to recude the Eberoty Mountain.

Joel Edgerton (actor) tosses an old-fashioned radio set that instead of landing on the ground it landed on Blanchett’s head.

Says one audience member:

She had blood streaming down the back of her head and blood on the back of her neck. She acted for about another 30 seconds, then ran into what we thought was the next scene.

“Before we knew it the lights were turned on and we were told there were technical difficulties and everyone had to evacuate the Sydney Theatre Company.”

Evacuate. Evacuate Evacuate. A radio is on the loose. No stand-in can be found. Evacuate!

Says one Australian male:

“Thanks God that over. I always depend on the kindness of strangers…”

Dim the lights…
