41 Eild, definition in Chambers.8 Abrus, bean plants.
16 Fell Runner.
41. 5,5 - part of a theatre. Anagram of 'tanagers' and a short, two-letter, Scottish word meaning 'very'. The second word is very guessable!

Thanks NAC.

I could not figure out where Fell is coming from. Still cannot parse 16.

I have unclueds 1a and 21a. Anagrams of both give me two of a kind.
Still trying to figure out the rest.
Hankir, fell can mean ruthless, it's in Chambers. Runner, ruthless smuggler, Fell Runner is rugged harrier (spot the extra word!).
1 A and 21 A are very specific, the theme itself is more ... general.
