This storyboard does not have a description.
Kent does not leave England, but instead shaves his beard and continues to serve Lear. Kent follows him to the Duke of Albany's palace where he becomes angered from him and Oswald's exchange.
The fool enters and points out to Lear the stupidity of his actions of dividing the kingdom and disowning Cordelia. The fool tells Kent he is as stupid as Lear for following him.
"Sirrah, you were best take my coxcomb"(1.4.94.).
Goneril tells Lear he must reduce his knights if he wants to remain in her household. Lear feels week and powerless by this, and decides to go stay with Regan instead.
Lear writes a letter to Regan, to inform her about his sudden arrival. He gives the letter to Kent to be delivered.
"O, let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven! Keep me in Temper; I would not be mad!" (1.5.43-44).
The fool continues to remind Lear of his bad decisions, and Lear begins to feel the approach of madness.
