If this question was given to you by a teacher you should go back and ask her/him to clarify it. 'Pygmalion' is a play, a drama to be enacted on stage and is thus an example of one genre. Apart from Shaw's idiosyncrasies, notably his elaborate stage directions, it is fairly conventional as a stage drama and there is no significant mingling of genres in it.
