Looking for a website that retells the plots of Shakespeare's plays. Using modern English, in short story form.

Does anybody know of websites that provide a synopsis or version in short story form? I already know that wikipedia provides a synopsis of each play, but I would LOVE to find something that does a modern retelling of his plays in story form, using modern English.
Perhaps something like this
, but not so child-oriented and using more present day language.
Creative retellings are welcome.
The purpose of this is so I can familiarize myself with the plots before reading/watching the plays. Hopefully I'd like to find something that is more fun to read than a collection of dry synposes.
