The Kennedys is a comedy about a working class family living in Stevenage. It's 1978 and Brenda, Tony and Emma Kennedy have just moved to Jessop Road estate. Brenda aspires to the 'middle class' lifestyle sold in glossy magazines, she is giddy as a kipper about the opportunity for social development the estate offers; they can host middle class dinner parties, drive middle class cars, do middle class small talk with their new middle class neighbours. Tony is so besotted with her that he tries to play along, he tries to step up but he doesn't really get it and so chaos ensues. Both Brenda and Tony idolise their 10 year old daughter Emma, she is Brenda's hope for the future of feminism and Tony's partner in crime. The Kennedy's best friends Jenny and Tim are less happy together. Tim, a virile and sociable man thinks nothing of having a fling with work colleagues whilst Jenny is keen to settle down. The Kennedys is a joyous romp, a celebration of working class communities. A feel good family show.
